My Fixie Photo's (Dial-up warning - big)

Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Thought these would end up looking great but they ended up being kinda lame.

I obviously had the camera on a couple of wrong settings... Anyway, here is my favourite bike





Need to change the handlebar stem and forks, but she's nearly there

And exposure. Is there a bright light directly behind the bike or something?

But, yeah, the bike looks nice. What rims are those?

Halogen lights also give a yellow/orange cast. A blue filter helps.

Nice bike.

Its the 'whitewall' at work. I work in a TV studio so I'll try again soonish... I obviously put too much heat in the lights and forgot to white balance, 'doh'!

The rims are Velocity deep V's with the sh*tty stickers peeled off. I struggled for ages to get the first one off and so my six year old daughter decided to try on the rear. She took it off in like quarter of the time!

Thought so, on both counts. I didn't know that the black Deep V's are so shiny, though. Enjoy the bike!
